“Gunite” is a trade name for “dry gunned” concrete. The term “gunite” has been used so much that, to most people, it means spray applied concrete. People often talk about a gunite pool — meaning a concrete pool where the concrete is pneumatically applied or sprayed in place using air pressure. Operator training is very critical and can mean the difference between success and failure of application.

Both processes undergo placement and compaction at the same time due to the force with which they are being applied. They can also be impacted onto any type or shaped surfaces. The biggest benefits are with vertical and overhead surfaces where typical poured in place concrete is costly to form and rather challenging to achieve placement and compaction in these situations.

“Wet mix” means the wet (already mixed) concrete is pumped to the nozzle. Air is added at the nozzle to carry the concrete mix to the target — again pneumatically applied. We call the system “wet gunning.” Here too, operator training is important.
